Giovanni Cocco, ‘Sweety Wing’, 2009, ILEX Gallery

Burlesque is ancient theatre with roots in the Victorian era in England - a popular form of entertainment which made fun of the powerful. Strip-tease was only one element and not at all mandatory. It also integrates choreography, orchestra music, comedy and, in the contemporary version, fetish and punk elements. It is theatre in continuous evolution - and not just a tribute to the past.
Burladies, is my personal portrait of the life of women in the Burlesque world.
-Giovanni Cocco
